    Montepulciano & Pienza: Full Day Wine Tour

Montepulciano & Pienza: Full Day Wine Tour

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 8 hours

Overview

This full day excursion is a celebration of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, one of Italy's most outstanding red wines made from a skillful blend of Prugnolo Gentile, Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo grapes.

Departing from and returning to your Florence or Siena hotel, the first stop is the Boscarelli Vineyards, known for their fine Nobile wine. A visit to the cellars and a wine tasting is included. Next stop is Montepulciano - called "The Pearl of the 16th Century" - a jewel of the Renaissance period. Curving its way along a ridge, the town delights visitors with vino and views.

After a short tour of Montepulciano, you'll visit the historic cellars of Contucci. This wine making family dates back 1,000 years and is one of the 'Fathers' of Vino Nobile. Lunch will be at Diva e Maceo, a lovely trattoria serving local Tuscan specialties.

Afterwards you will head to the Poliziano estate for a guided wine tasting. Final stop of the day is Pienza. The town's main piazza was commissioned by native son Pope Pius II in 1459, and is the first example of Renaissance town planning in Italy. Pienza is also known for its excellent sheep's milk cheese (pecorino di Pienza).

Our guide was very knowledgeable about wines. She obviously enjoyed her job, and she made the day a fun and memorable experience for all of us. Our driver was courteous to all of us for the entire day.

Our tour guide Barbara was the absolute best. We had such a fun day and she went out of her way to make sure that everyone in our group had a great time. I will definilty recommend this tour to others and of course, Barbara as well. The tour was great and barbara was fantastic. Great combination.
